A32: How did Cat in the Wall come together?
CITW: We met in 2013 at the School of Rock in Cherry Hill, NJ. Kyle (drummer), and Jon (guitarist/vocalist), were best friends before meeting Pat (guitarist). After we started jamming, Kyle 2 filled the bass player spot. We put together a set of covers from our favorite bands with over half devoted to the Foo Fighters. Since then, the lineup hasn’t changed and we have become best friends. We’ve grown up playing all kinds of music with all kinds of people together, making our connection and comfort when creating music stronger.

A32: What advice do you have for other musicians looking to start a band and release their own music?
CITW: We still have a long way to go, but for other, younger bands, being able to communicate and grow with the people you play with makes a world of difference. This can only be achieved by practicing way more than you think is necessary.
